Nomination Goes to Network’s First Scripted Project CARLOS and its Star Édgar Ramírez

New York, December 14, 2010 –Sundance Channel was recognized with its first ever Golden Globe nominations today in the categories of Best Mini- Series or Motion Picture Made for Television and Best Performance By an Actor in a Mini-Series or Motion Picture Made for Television for CARLOS and its star Édgar Ramírez, the network’s first foray into scripted programming.  The series, from award-winning filmmaker Olivier Assayas (SUMMER HOURS), made its U.S. premiere on Sundance Channel in October 2010 and provided a definitive portrait of the renowned international terrorist known as Carlos the Jackal, who masterminded a wave of terror attacks in Europe and the Middle East in the ’70s and ’80s.

“We are overjoyed at the wildly positive response to our miniseries CARLOS and its star Édgar Ramírez” said Sarah Barnett, Sundance Channel Executive VP and GM. “The nomination is especially exciting for Sundance Channel since CARLOS marked our first step into the world of scripted programming.”

CARLOS is produced by Studio Canal in association with Film En Stock, Egoli Tossell Film and Sundance Channel.  Sundance Channel will re-air CARLOS on Thursday, January 20th beginning at 8pm ET/PT and the series will be available on Video on Demand beginning Wednesday, February 2nd.
